Healthy Living in a Digital World
I love the outdoors, and spend a good portion of my life extending my respect and gratitude to the outdoors and those who seek it. My free time is spent hiking with my family, trail running, mountain biking, skiing, cross country skiing, cycling and solo exploring. The activities I participate in all involve a form of meditation combined with physical activity; a meditation in motion. These meditations are typically practiced in serene and scenic areas that enable the mind to reflect and contemplate. Not only do you personally gain a new perspective, but you interact with others in a more positive and enlightened state. Athletic discipline requires total concentration, but also provides a sense of calmness and expansion of the mind. The unique emotions experienced while exercising in the outdoors allow you to open your eyes to new horizons. Yoga is an extension of this perspective, as it releases tension in your muscles, invites attention to breath, and prepares your body for a meditative state. Yoga is not something that must be practiced in a studio or group setting; it can be part of everyday life, whether at work, on the road or at home. This is the reason I fell in love with Gaia!
